Three things that happened today

with 6 comments

1. I went for my x-ray and blood test. Quick and painless, except the nurse did ask if I was pregnant. Um, no, I just have a little extra weight around the stomach area at the moment. (Handsome Bob: “Don´t take it personally. They have to ask all the unmarried women.” T: “Actually, I was the only one they asked.”) At least the encounter spurred me into going swimming this evening!

2. When I arrived at work, I discovered we have a new intern, aka personal slave. I know how it´s hard when you start somewhere and no one gives you any direction, so I´ve taken her under my wing. And she does whatever I tell her. Nice.

3. My editor casually offered me a press junket to Malta in March. (“You may have to write something about it though.”) Sadly, the offer was retracted when he realised it would be during a deadline week. However, he did mention that we´re getting thrown loads of freebies at the moment, and he´ll come up with something for me… Woohoo!

  1. OK, take it from the EXPERT – there is no way on god’s green earth that you look pregnant so that nurse is just stoopid.

  3. To Nats: Thanks babes! And how is Natpumi – kicking strong?

    To Kim: Ja, if only 😉

  4. I think it’s because X-Rays can damages foetuses, so it was probably a precautionary question?

  5. Maybe also because, as an unmarried expat, I´d prolly be deported if I were pregnant…

  6. BTW, Natpumi no longer kicks cos he/she is mightily squashed up in there… I think he/she just hangs out and sleeps and drinks too much of my sweet amniotic fluid (have been v. bad with sugar lately. Gad, the guilt).
